Educational opportunities at Harvard-Westlake extend well beyond our campus.  Each year, faculty-led travel programs take students throughout the United States as well as around the world. These opportunities deepen their understanding of local, national, and global issues. Recent programs have included language immersion, cultural exchange, performance opportunities, and student conferences. Programs are promoted throughout the year by the faculty organizers. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Jim Patterson, Director of the Kutler Center.

Below are trips that were generally open to students though some may have certain restrictions. Trips that are open to only a small number of students are not listed below. As trips are approved throughout the year, this list will be updated.
